Background

Whereas minor errors in a document the size of the GP-US Platform are to be expected, we need to have a process in place that allows the Platform Committee to correct such mistakes as soon as they are noticed. Therefore, this proposal spells out exactly what can be edited by the Platform Committee, and puts in place a specific process that is intended to be simple and efficient while also safeguarding all-important meaning and context of the Platform content being edited.

Proposal

Add to GPUS Rules and Procedures Section XII a new subsection 12.3.1, as follows: Proposed amendments for minor grammar corrections, typos, and dates that are no longer relevant in the GP-US Platform can be made at any time by the GP-US Platform Committee. This does not include style rewrites or other deletions of material, but is limited to those items above-mentioned only. If approved by the Platform Committee, such housekeeping amendments will be sent on to the National Committee when enough have accrued that the co-chairs of the Platform Committee deem it advisable, but no less than annually. Once the National Committee has signed off on them, the changes shall be made immediately and a request issued to the GP-US webmaster for an update to the published version(s) on the GP-US web site.
